Wearing this mask and hauling laundry up and down narrow stairs from the top floor to the basement also makes me realize I need to find some other exercises to give me more stability. It does not help when the mask pushes my trifocals out of alignment either or the basket moves off my hip and locks my view.
My son is still running a fever of 99+ on the third day and hiding out in the dark basement which is his sound studio. It is cramped and full of electronic gear but has a bathroom all to himself. Hopefully now that Monday has arrived, he can get an appointment with his doctor and see about geting Paxlovid. I am not sure how contagious he will remain even after that. It seems it took a President to show us there is no magic bullet. We will depend on tests. I made him go sit outside for 10 minutes for some change of scenery. It is so hot and humid but maybe he got some vitamin D.
Their dog also demands walking and feeding times. He is too big for me to walk and he has to be fed sharply at 6:00 AM. I think he has them well-trained, but it does present problems when you then have a child!
Ah well, they are learning the hard way. I have an important appointment with the TSA in a few days and hope that my daughter-in-laws mother can come down and help for a while.
It is amazing how much time is taken up with feeding, entertaining and changing a 3-month-old, making sure the dog is happy, doing laundry and helping with cooking in a kitchen that is not mine.
Regarding our houseguest which I mentioned in the prior post, it appears he has broken his collar bone and hubby is trying to get a follow-up appointment with a specialist today. Looks like we will have him with us for a few weeks (months?) more. He drove up in a big truck pulling an airstream, so he is not going to be able to make a getaway any time soon.
Send thoughts to the powers that be for good energies here to keep baby safe and speed up healing for those who are ill. Thanks.
